Overview

About the property

Apartment in St Ives, Cornwall, England - Tranquil Location,10 Minutes To Beaches

Go to bed with the doors open and you will fall asleep to the sound of the sea; step out onto the covered balcony and be instantly connected with the coast line and beach. You may even spot dolphins in the Bay. Have breakfast outside under cover in the early morning sun and plan whether to go out or simply stay where you are. The view is stunning. This Light Filled apartment is on the first floor of an Edwardian Country House which was built for the St Ives School of Artists. There are 2 bathrooms (one en-suite), with a large, high ceilinged Bedroom with Sea views and a door to the Balcony. The Main living room is double aspect with French Windows also leading onto the balcony. The kitchen/diner has a range cooker, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dish washer. The property is set in a Sub Tropical Garden It is accessed via 2 sets of steps down from the lane outside. It is suitable for couples of all ages and those with children, however, children should be supervised on the balcony. There are 7 other properties in the building, some of which are private residencies and not rented out. The house in situated in Treloyhan which is the most exclusive area of St Ives. In springtime the scent of wild garlic is wonderful. The whole area is a haven for wildlife which includes Owls, Buzzards, Green Woodpecker and a myriad of smaller birds. Foxes and Badgers may be glimpsed. Specimen trees are in abundance in the area. The best way to enjoy all of this is by walking. The pedestrian pathway leads through the Gardens on the Seaward side of the house down a pathway lined with ancient moss covered granite walls to Haines Walk . Then you must decide whether to turn right to Carbis Bay where you can enjoy the facilities of the Carbis Bay Hotel, the beach with its water sports and marvellous walks or turn left towards St Ives itself. The location is perfect. Another option is to walk to the Tregenna Castle Hotel where you can be enjoying a round of golf within 10 minutes with probably the best view of St Ives from the 12th Fairway! Tescos is also a 10 minute walk as is our local the Cornish Arms. What more could anyone ask for? This is genuinely a special place. This apartment is also perfect to explore the Poldark series locations.

About Susie

We love this area and property and were visiting regularly but we now have grandchildren and busy lives so able to let the apartment for others to enjoy.

Susie purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Susie chose St Ives

Our first sightings of the coast line here were of huge areas of golden beaches glimpsed through the trees as we wondered down to the sea shore. The tide was out and we instantly fell in love with the scenery.

What makes this apartment unique

Glorious golden sandy beaches, lots of trees, clean air and friendly people. Supermarket less than 5 minutes and close to the sea-side town of St Ives and yet we enjoy total tranquillity and stunning sea- views. You can sit out in all weathers under the cover of the balcony gazing out onto the Bay and at the unspoilt coastline. Numerous cafés and restaurants nearby in Carbis Bay or. St Ives. Endless places to visit with the South coast and nearby rivers for day trips.

To quote from a guests review "Spent a great week here with a very warm welcome and special welcoming touches that made us feel very at home. The views really are incredible and we didn’t want to leave. We hope we can come back soon. A great place to explore with lovely coastal walks on your doorstep. A little slice of heaven."

Fantastic views, bright, airy, spacious apartment with all the necessary amenities - just perfect

  • 5 of 5

On our arrival we were greeted by Jill, who showed us round the apartment and gave us some information on local eateries, etc. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious the apartment is (the photos do not do it justice). Then there were the views - absolutely breath taking of Carbis Bay, Hayle Bay and beyond. The gentle sound of the sea breaking against the shore is something we will miss, especially at night as it lulls you to sleep.

We would recommend dinner at Porthmeor Beach Café, especially the tapas (we were lucky enough to have a beautiful clear, sunny day and were treated to a spectacular sunset) - we booked a few weeks in advance and requested a heated booth (perfect when the sun sets and the evening turns chilly). The local pub, The Cornish Arms, hold a quiz night every Wednesday (we came last!). The food was absolutely delicious, we would recommend the fish and chips.

To summarise, the apartment offers great value for money, clean, bright and spacious with all the home comforts. The beds are very comfortable, showers easy to use, towels provided and good wifi connection. Jill was very friendly and gave us tips on where to eat, etc. St. Ives has all the eateries/pubs/shops you could want but best of all is the location and views over the bay.

There were 4 of us and we took two cars, one we parked outside the apartment as advised and we had no problem parking our other car just up the road on the street.

We were even greeted with a bottle of wine and Jill had left us milk in the fridge. THANK YOU.

Yes, we would love to stay at this apartment again.

wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely few days here {despite the weather!}. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable with lovely views of Carbis Bay from both the lounge and master bedroom. It is well located to be able to walk to both Carbis Bay and St Ives which meant that we did not have to worry about finding somewhere to park in the town and also meant we were able to walk off some of the cream teas etc.. We are also very grateful to the key holder who very kindly posted our daughter's coat back to us which had been left in the wardrobe, Looking forward to returning in the summer.

Huge character, indescribable view, fairly private and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

If you'd like to avoid the melee of towns but remain connected to multiple beaches and key amenities this is the place. Also has benefits of large airy rooms. Views from balcony stunning. Parking and proximity to tescos a real bonus. Beautiful gardens and entry to coast path
